Andreas Andreopoulos in his book Metamorphosis: The Transfiguration in Byzantine Theology and Iconography, is the first to my knowledge to deal with the question of two aspects of God’s glory directly. Among other things, he talks about how some scholars separate the notion of glory into two aspects which he frames as light and space. But how do we represent this in images?, In his book on the transfiguration, Fr. Andreas does a good job at laying out the basic question of glory and how tradition developed different shapes of mandorlas for different reasons.

I'm not sure how to rate this. As a book that I used for my masters work it was excellent.

It went over transfiguration as seen in Byzantine Theology. You feel after learning more about it that we really should put Jesus's transfiguration front and center. It covers how important icons are in conveying information regarding the transfiguration. Why light is so important and in particular uncreated light, and it goes over the symbol of the mandorla which is very important to transfiguration. It also covered historical development of the theology.

I thought his translations of pseudo-Dionysios were especially nice. If your researching transfiguration you should definitely obtain a copy of this book, but I think it is also full of worthy information for spiritual seekers as well.

The other book that often comes up in a related search is The Uncreated Light: An Iconographiocal Study of the Transfiguration In the Eastern Church, by Ness. A very nice book too, but more of it was focused on breaking down the major related icons. You can really separate studing this topic from studying the icons. I felt this book covered a wider breadth of ideas however.

Eastern Christianity has a more developed theology of the transfiguration than does the west. And, perhaps because of the hesychast tradition, they have a more fully developed theology behind iconography as well. Combining the two studies into one is a natural fit to discover how they both developed over the centuries to now. At times the text gets bogged down in details that may not interest most lay people (such as continually returning to the discussion of the oval vs. circular mandorla). On the one hand it seems to be a study aimed at the popular audience but which gets sidetracked often into technical details that would only interest the professional theologian. Occasional theological tidbits give us rays of inspiration such as the discussion of the correlation between the transfiguration and the feast of tabernacles. And, combining the historical and theological threads of study throughout the text, the reader is drawn to a greater appreciation of the significance of the transfiguration event and of iconography in general. Worth the time to digest but it will likely be slow going for the ordinary Christian reader.
